People Are Anonymously Broadcasting Their Secrets At This British Train Station
By Louise Jane Cher, 23 Sep 2015
People are now divulging their deepest secrets and fears publicly on ‘The Waiting Wall’, a display board at Brighton train station in England.
The anonymous confessions, which are submitted through the official website, are projected onto the display for other commuters to read, while waiting for their trains—these range from personal insecurities and regrets, secrets about their loved ones, to mundane everyday concerns about life.
‘The Waiting Wall’ was created by Alan Donohoe and Steven Parker of Free the Trees, for the Brighton digital festival that runs from 21 September through 27 September 2015.
The duo was inspired by author Alain de Botton’s suggestion for a modern day version of Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall. ‘The Waiting Wall’ thus came about to allow people to “anonymously broadcast our inner woes”, and be reminded that “none of us alone in the extent of our troubles and lamentations.”
Can you identify with any of these confessions?
